Fearless Founders - Idea Shell Application

Fearless Founders is an experiential program that provides student teams the strategy, frameworks and tools necessary to develop their business ideas using lean startup methodology. The program demystifies the venture creation process by breaking it up into three stages. Throughout the stages, teams will work to create sustainable business models by de-risking their ventures. Students will test and validate assumptions through customer discovery, hands-on workshops and mentoring.

Idea Shell will run Mondays from September 29 through November 10 from 3 to 5 p.m. in Van Munching Hall. There will be five workshops, multiple events, and a final presentation required for the program. You will also attend Pitch Dingman advising sessions twice throughout the semester. Upon completion of the course, students at the Idea Shell stage become eligible for $500 seed grants. These seed grants will be announced at the Pitch Dingman Competition set for Thursday, November 20.

Final Application Deadline: Fri, 9/26
